Auction Gavel Signals Final End Of Davis Brothers Scrap
POTTSTOWN PA – A recent auction of contents of the former Davis Brothers Scrap Co. Inc., 1410 Old Glasgow Rd., marked the official end to a business that operated in the borough for more than five decades, The (Pottstown PA) Mercury newspaper reported Wednesday (Sept. 18, 2013).
Most recent owner John Davis, age 91, closed the doors of Davis Brothers Scrap during 2012. The firm bought, sold and processed scrap metal, and had been in the Davis family for three generations. Family members to whom the newspaper talked said the auction proceedings were emotional and bittersweet. The auction was conducted by Ron Rhoads Auctions of Douglassville.
The auction included vehicles, old toys, ornamental metal, signs, clocks, vintage car parts, furniture and armor.
